Huddersfield Town's match against Manchester United is the most long-awaited fixture in the Premier League.

The Terriers host United on October 21 - over 45-and-a-half years since the two sides last met.

No other two Premier League teams will have waited so long to play one another.

The two sides last met on March 11, 1972 at Old Trafford, when Town were last in the top flight.

Frank O’Farrell’s side walked away 2-0 winners that day thanks to goals from Ian Storey-Moore and George Best.

When the two sides finally meet again in October, 16,660 days will have passed since that last encounter which works out at just over 45-and-a-half years.

The next longest time that will have passed between two teams playing one another is 16,460 days.

Town last played Tottenham on September 6, 1972, with the London side winning two-one in the League Cup.

When the Terriers next play Spurs on September 30, just over 45 years will have passed since that last game.
